May Hill

May Hill Class comprises of Reception, Year 1 and Year 2 children, aged 4-7. This year (2019/20) there are twenty three children in the class and they are taught by Mrs Tyler (class teacher), Mrs Connelly (teaching assistant) and Mrs Lynne Heron (teaching assistant).

The younger children (Reception) follow the national Early Years Foundation Stage curriculum which covers seven areas of learning:-

-Communication and language

-Physical development

-Personal, social and emotional development



-Understanding the world

-Expressive art and design

The curriculum is very play based with the children taking a lead in their learning, supported by the adults. They are encouraged to use a wide range of resources in both the inside and outside areas. Continuous assessment enables the staff to judge when the children are ready for more formal learning.

In Years 1 and 2 the children follow the National Curriculum through termly topics which enable the development of skills and the acquisition of knowledge in a stimulating, creative and fun way.

Beware! Here be dragons! As part of our topic on Change we will be exploring dungeons and dragons. As well as imaginative play in our own Pauntley castle we will be visiting a real medieval castle. This trip will inspire us to write posters, poems and stories. There will be exciting d.t. projects - look out for flying dragons in the corridor and we will be using different media to make our classroom colourful.

As Spring approaches we will be investigating life cycles - chicks, frogs and butterflies.We will visit a Butterfly Zoo and explore pattern, shapes and symmetry in maths. We will also be going on a walk around Pool Hill to find out how homes have changed over the years.

Remember to look at the topic tree display in the corridor to see how busy we are.
